Alex Smith completed 18 of 19 passes for 232 yards and three touchdowns.
49ers QB Alex Smith nearly was on Monday night, as he threw only one incomplete pass in leading San Francisco to a convincing 24-3 drubbing of the Cardinals in Arizona. Smith was 18 of 19 for 232 yards and three scores, with the lone incomplete pass coming by way of a dropped ball by a wide-open Delanie Walker. Perhaps Smith's biggest accomplishment . . . he found Randy Moss for one of his scores.
